DR JOANNE PAYNE
Joanne is a medical doctor, aesthetic practitioner, wife and mum-of-two. Joanne went to medical school at Glasgow university alongside Dr Darren McKeown. She graduated from medical school with distinction in her finals and went on to work in the NHS, becoming a member of the Royal College of Physicians and working in a number of medical specialities. As Joanne got older and began to notice the first signs of ageing herself, she turned to her old friend and aesthetics expert – Dr Darren McKeown – for some help. After realising the benefits aesthetic interventions could have she decided to pursue a career in aesthetics, being personally tutored by Darren to learn the techniques of creating natural looks that are ‘undetectable’.
Joanne’s main interest is in helping you achieve the best skin possible, with the healthiest natural glow. With this in mind, she specialises in subtle injectables, laser resurfacing and her biggest passion is in CoolScultping – helping her patients get rid of the odd bulge of fat that causes them concerns about the way they look both in and out of clothes’.
